Gospel singer and actress Kierra Sheard-Kelly is overjoyed to share the news of her first child, a baby girl named Khloé-Drew Valencia Kelly. Sheard-Kelly and her husband Jordan Kelly welcomed their daughter on November 11, 2023, after a long and challenging journey to parenthood.
The couple, who married in December 2020, had previously suffered two miscarriages that nearly took Sheard-Kelly’s life. They had been praying and believing God for a miracle child, and their prayers were finally answered with Khloé-Drew.
“We are blessed to introduce to you our gift from the Lord, Khloé-Drew Valencia Kelly. Words can’t describe our journey and how God blessed us with our miracle child,” Sheard-Kelly announced on Instagram, along with a photo of her holding her newborn daughter.
Khloé-Drew is the first grandchild for the Sheard family, and the first great-grandchild for Mattie Moss Clark, the legendary gospel choir director and matriarch of the Clark Sisters. Sheard-Kelly said she was honored to continue the legacy of her family, and to pass on the faith and love that they have instilled in her.
She also thanked her husband for being her rock and her partner, and for loving her and their daughter unconditionally. She said he has been a wonderful father, and she looks forward to raising their child together.
Sheard-Kelly said she is grateful for all the blessings in her life, and for the opportunity to be a mother. She said she hopes to inspire and encourage other women who are facing infertility or pregnancy loss, and to remind them that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that they can ask or think.
